2021 saw the growth of two youth pilot programs, Xingona Youth Camp and Let’s Break Bread – both pilot programs were rooted in addressing the mental health and overall well being of youth in our Community. We also hosted several vaccine clinics and offered Community a way to connect with mental health therapists to explore and learn more about their mental health.
Xingona youth camp launched as a 6-week summer program for 12 young women of color to grow and connect with other homegirls in their community
Let’s Break Bread was a 2-month long program rooted in engaging and teaching young people the history, traditions, and power of healing circles. Our pilot engaged 12 young people.
